the next chapter in this saga of trying to resolve the situation of the fiscal cliff. it is clear that our conference has been consistent in its commitment to do something about the spending problem in washington and the mounting debt that has resulted. we stand ready to continue in dialog with this president to actually fix the problem. i hope that we see that our colleagues on the other side of the capitol can do likewise to get serious to address the real problem of spending so that we can get on about the business of growing economy and getting people back to work. >> a lot of the arguments that you made [inaudible] [inaudible] >> the president and i had a series of conversations. i told president these were my the president told me his revenues, $850 billion in line. he could not go any further. so we see a situation where, because of the political divide in the country, because of the divide here in washington, trying to bridge the differences has been difficult. if it were easy, i guarantee this would have been done decades before, but we have to find a way to address this significa

very much. >>> and to washington now, with congress home for the holidays, a deal on the fiscal cliff looks less and less likely. that could mean coal in the stocking for house speaker john boehner and also mean the end in his two-year rein. he is facing pressure after his plan "b" failure. he proposed a plan, but republicans had to pull it off the table after admitting they just couldn't get it passed. >>> for an illustration of the pressure facing john boehner, check the latest polls. that's what we have political reporter john steinhauser for. >> americans are worried about the taxes if the nation falls off the fiscal cliff at the end of the year. seven of ten questioned in our poll says there will be major problems or a crisis in the country if that happens. >> part of what voters they were looking for is some compromise up here. that's what folks want. >> our poll indicates more americans want the republicans than the democrats to compromise more to reach bipartisan solutions. >> the democrat-controlled white house has no plan and offered no plan all year to deal with these loomi

republic in washington state has the front-page story on the fiscal cliff called "tax hikes may not hit paychecks right away." it's about how it's already too late for employers to accurately withhold income taxes from january paychecks. and the reno sunday gazette journal has an article entitled "first person: buying a weapon at the reno gun show." the writer chronicles how he went to a gun show and bought a semiautomatic rifle in less than 30 minutes for under $600. the background check took 15 minutes. one gun seller told the reporter rifles similar to the one used in newtown were expected to double in price in the next 90 days. i just finished reading that article. pretty unbelievable. >>> a democratic president at a time of political upheaval passes a major gun-control act in the wake of several shooting tragedies. that may sound like president obama's plan for the next term, but it actually happened 44 years ago. >> today we begin to disarm the criminals and the careless and the insane. and all of our people who are deeply concerned in this country about law and order should hail

with the establishment crowd in washington. a lot of people can forgive john boehner for playing the cards on the fiscal cliff. he really doesn't have a winning strategy. because one doesn't exist. but i think the conservatives trying to buy a little upset. right now, there is no big name out there willing to challenge it. gerri: it is an interesting question. it seems like yone who has that job is really hurting because everyone is all over the place. it is so hard to get them together. thank you both for coming on tonight, we really appreciate it. happy holidays and merry christmas, thank you so much reed thank you, gerri. gerri: next, many homeowners rushing to rush and to dump their property ahead of the fiscal cliff. dolly will join us after the break and dreaming of a white christmas and then there is this. coming up, how mother nature is putting a damper on things i always wait until the last minute. can i still ship a gift in time r christmas? yeah, sure you can. great. where's your gift? uh... whew.

to go back to washington to oversee things as perhaps they move or as perhaps the fiscal cliff comes nearer and the u.s. goes over it. >> can we expect any other lobbyists, any other lawmakers to step up to the plate and kick start negotiations? i mean, what about senate minority leader mitch mcconnell? >> well, the thing at this point -- and i'm told by sources -- is that there really are no negotiations going on between senator mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate and senate majority leader harry reid who is actually in hawaii today for the funeral of daniel inouye and is on his way back to washington. it would really come down to the senate doing something. the way democrats see it, there's a possibility that senator mcconnell might allow this bill that i mentioned that already passed in july with the threshold for tax hikes being at the $250,000 level, that he might sort of allow democrats to say okay, the house has to take this or if there is some sort of vote on another measure that while mitch mcconnell would be unlikely to personally support it, perhaps he mig
